Digitally enhanced general practice and integrated person-centred care to optimise management of acute and chronic diseases and promote health and safety and quality of care of individuals. Digital information collected as part of routine health care can and should be quality assessed and used to personalise care as well as guide evidence-based policy and population health. Interoperability and quality of digital data and tools working off a standards-based enterprise architecture and service platform is a fundamental requirement to harness digital technologies for individual and population health. Digitalisation should consider ethical, legal and sociotechnical issues.
